Repeating here some photos from an old post that was wiped out when the site was hacked a few years ago.
We needed a Forward Observer Team to use as regimental support for a WWII Pacific USMC Platoon and using the Iron Ivan Disposable Heroes rules you get the option of either a Marine or Navy FO team.
I decided on a Navy team in white dixie cup hats and some “true-blue” navy gear.
The hats were made with some thin strands of paper and white-glue wrapped around bare heads taken from other figures.
I wanted to use them in scenarios as a kind of Naval landing party, even for some pulp scenarios, having them stranded on an dinosaur and hostile-native infested island, crazy things like that.
The figures are IMEX, a mixture from the two sets of Korean War figures, all with new heads.
